Massachusetts   Soldiers  and   Sailors 

IN  THE 

War  of  the   Revolution. 


Note.  —  All  names  are  given  exactly  as  they  appear  on  the  original  records.  The  order  of 
arrangement  of  the  facts  of  service  in  each  individual  record  given  is  the  same,  as  nearly  as  pos- 
sible, as  the  original  entries,  and  is  as  follows  :  The  name;  the  place  of  residence,  if  given;  the 
rank;  the  kind  of  document  whereon  the  record  appears;  the  enlistment  and  discharge,  if 
given;  the  time  of  service;  remarks. 

A  discrepancy  will  sometimes  be  noted  between  the  ser^'ice  given  and  the  actual  service  as 
figured  between  the  dates  of  enlistment  and  discharge.  The  difference  is  accounted  for  by  the 
practice  of  including,  with  service  performed,  a  time  allowance  for  travel  on  the  basis  of  one 
day  for  every  20  miles  out  or  home.  As  the  same  name  may  appear  under  various  forms,  each 
carrying  some  portion  of  a  record  of  service,  it  is  necessary  in  order  to  obtain  the  complete 
record,  as  far  as  preserved,  of  any  given  individual,  to  examine  all  the  forms  under  which 
a  name  is  stated  to  appear  in  the  Record  Index.
